I probably should have put the cups & saucers together and grouped
the items accordingly but I didn’t think about that until just now. **sorry** I also have a pitcher but it is still at my in-laws house and I think they have the cookie jar too. Not sure about lids to either of those pieces though. I love this set of dinnerware and even if it’s not worth much it holds sentimental value to me as it was my in-laws first set of dishes and a wedding gift to them. We have pictures of them using these pieces and the pictures alone are priceless to me. Thank you so much for your time and for your help. I hope these pictures are what you need, if not, let me know and I will re-take them in better groupings or sets. Thank you, Tina
Tina, The photos you sent show a very nice set of Capistrano dishes. I will assume all of your Capistrano pieces are shown by the photos, with the exception of a pitcher and a cookie jar which were not available for the photos.
I would estimate the value of your collection as shown to be $350 to $450, assuming all pieces are in excellent condition. Chips, cracks, stains and other damage reduce the value significantly. As you stated, you have the serving pieces of a service for eight of (although I see only 7 cups). You are missing the covered sugar bowl and a set of salt & pepper shakers from what I would consider to be a basic set. If desired, these piece are readily available on the market.
You also have several nice accessory pieces. The egg plate is the most valuable of them, and you also have what appears to be a buffet bowl. (Hard to be certain without knowing the dimensions.) You mentioned a pitcher not in the photos. Two types of pitcher were made — a covered beverage server with a spout and an open water pitcher. You also mentioned a cookie jar. No cookie jar was made in the Capistrano pattern. But perhaps you have a casserole (round with a cover) or a soup tureen (elongated oval with a cover). The casserole is fairly common; the soup tureen is more difficult to find and thus more valuable.
I hope this information is helpful. While your set certainly has some value, it is not worth a fortune. Enjoy it for the memories it holds for you!
